Invited by the Tourism Authority of Thailand, ALI sent our own Teal Greyhavens to Thailand on a cultural heritage tour. From Chiang Mai in the north to the islands around Koh Chang in the south, this tour features the Hmong, Yao and Akha hill tribes; spectacular Buddhist temples; bathing elephants; traditional food production and marketing; and the monuments of the capitol, Bangkok. Thailand is a country whose past and present coalesce in the lives of its people and the environment they have managed for many centuries.
